First Class Style!

From the moment I arrived until the moment I left, the Staff and accommodations were first-rate. The hardwood floors in the lobby give off an impressive shine and the sitting area is large and comfortable. This hotel is a combination of history and present day displayed right there in the very structure of it all. Even more, there is more of the same to see within the nearby area. Many places of interest are within walking distance. The rooms are super clean and have a feel of home. Breakfast was great and housekeeping did an excellent job. Worth another stay for sure.

Cool quick getaway

Nearly all the SA hotels were booked on the Riverwalk. This hotel isn't that far from the good stuff and it's a cool building. I would definitely stay there again.

good location

This hotel is located to the San antonio downtown. It takes only a few minutes from the hotel to riverwalk. However, it becomes completely dark at night around the hotel. It is better not to get out alone after sunset.

Great spot: Good Hotel

The staff was very helpful. The location is excellent. Breakfast ends at 9:30am... maybe it would have been a bit better if it went at least until 10:30am. Besides that, it was a great experience!

Nice price, valuable

about two blocks from river walk, so if you are single better to return from river walk earlier. The nice thing is free parking and about 4 dollars breakfast. The only thing I felt not good was the hotel's location was not easybto find , especially for the person who was the first time to visit and drove car.

Nice overall! Would stay again!!

My cousin and I went on a road trip for our birthdays and wanted to stay at a place close to the main attractions. This hotel was just that, not a bad walk to some of our destinations, despite the heat! The room was very nice and spacious! My only complaints revolve around the shower which spouted out hard water that felt like needles on the skin, the sink faucet handles that would leak water when turned on, and the free yet very small parking lot that didn't accommodate all guests thus leaving you to park in a lot down the street for five dollars a night! Other than than, the staff was very friendly/helpful and the breakfast buffet wasn't bad either.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If staying nearby, walk whenever and wherever you can to the Riverwalk and surrounding areas because cost of parking will definitely shrink the wallet!

Excellent staff, location and price

Right from check-in the reception staff were extremely helpful in suggestions and booking tours etc. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and have all necessary facilities. Air-con. is noisy but very efficient. Good breakfast offered. Trolley stop outside hotel but easy flat walking distance to most locations. Every request was dealt with immediately and would highly recommend this hotel.

Great Mission Charm

It was a good mile walk to the Alamo I would guess, but it WAS a very nice walk! The hotel had a very small parking area, and while it was still free, if it was full you had to park across the street in public transit parking. Staff did not ask to help with my bags, which was a turnoff.

Great for exploring San Antonio

Not on Riverwalk but very close. It is on the yellow trolley line if you don't want to walk. The hotel is very well maintained. It was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and very helpful. I'd stay there again. If you are a light sleeper then the closeness of the railroad will be a problem.
